RESISTANCE IS ALL
For years, writers and filmmakers have speculated about the possibility of the Earth being invaded by aliens from another planet. But what if the aliens have been watching us, infiltrating us via human collaborators, or even surgically altering themselves to look human?
Occupied Earth is a groundbreaking anthology that explores the idea of what the world would look like years after its conquest. 20 years after a successful invasion by the Makh-Ra, humanity still exists, only it has become subservient to a race of occupiers who govern the devastated planet. But, as much at things continue with some sense of normalcy, something has happened in the Mahk-Ra’s empire. Earth, once considered a strategic beachhead of major importance to the Empire, has been downgraded in its value. Things are starting to degrade. Our planet is the last place any self-respecting Mahk-Ra officer wants to be assigned. Yet, despite everything, life continues.
These stories bring us face to face with annihilation — and show how we can pull ourselves back from the brink. Featuring Rachel Howzell Hall, Lisa Morton, Matthew V. Clemens, Howard Hendrix, Nathan Walpow and more, OCCUPIED EARTH is coming. Stay safe. Stay strong. Survive at all costs.
This anthology pulls together writers to explore a shared universe where an alien race called the Makh-Ra took over humankind several decades ago. Each writer spins a tale about humanity trying to survive in a society dominated by aliens. Together, they present a fascinating series of exploits of characters who are surviving and resisting in an occupied zone. Voice actors Arsenault and Hinton prove capable narrators for the most part. Hinton excels when it comes to character voices, but his descriptive narration, while increasing the tension of a scene, can also push the listener away. Arsenault's narration is more consistent as she reads in lively voice with a solid cadence that keeps listeners intrigued. A Polis paperback.
